BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - An environmentalist who played a role in the restoration of Webber Pond in Vassalboro will speak in Brunswick about efforts to restore alewife herring in Maine.

Frank Richardson of the Webber Pond Association will talk about the politics of restoring alewives to the Vasalboro pond. The event is called “Zen, Alewife Restoration and the Art of War.”

Fishery regulators say river herring such as alewives are “considered to be depleted.” The fish occur from Canada to Florida and are used for bait and food. They are also a key piece of the food web.

Richardson’s event is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Wednesday at Curtis Memorial Library. It is sponsored by Friends of Merrymeeting Bay.
